Jennifer R.  Ross has 11 years of experience in the fields of Historic Preservation and Cultural Resources Management.  She meets the Secretary of the Interior's Professional Qualification Standards for Historian and Architectural Historian. Ms. Ross’ areas of expertise include the planning and execution of Cultural Resource Assessment Surveys; HABS Level I, II and III documentation; community outreach; archival research; and Cultural Resource consultation/coordination for compliance with the National Historic Preservation Act, the National Environmental Policy Act, and the Department of Transportation Act. 

She also has authored numerous intensive-level historic contexts to include the application of NRHP Evaluation Criteria to the assessment of historic resources and the preparation of Registration requirements. Over her career, Ms. Ross has identified, evaluated, and documented thousands of historic-age resources (50 years of age or older), including a large number of properties that were erected during the post-World War II Era. Specifically, Ms. Ross has documented post-World War II Era property types which range from expansive military and civilian industrial production facilities to commercial and residential properties. In 2006-2007, Ms. Ross led an effort to document and assessed over 200 post-World War II Era subdivisions in Arlington, Texas. Her completed product was enthusiastically accepted by the client. As a result of these efforts, Ms. Ross has developed a deep appreciation and understanding of modern architecture and postwar community planning/development.
